I was trained in a variety of therapy modalities which include family systems, gestalt, cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic. I earned my doctorate in clinical psychology from Widener University in Chester, PA in 1997. After completing my doctorate, I received advanced training from Masters and Johnson’s Program as well as Dr. Patrick Carnes. Additionally, I spent five years as the clinical director of the Keystone Center Extended Care Unit, a nationally known residential treatment program for healing from sexually compulsive behaviors and trauma. For 5 years I was a board member of IITAP- The International Institute of Trauma and Addictions Professionals, where I headed the supervision committee. I have supervised hundreds of therapists and lectured nationally on various topics including healing from trauma, addictions, post-traumatic stress and co-dependency. I have trained therapists at various addictions facilities including: The Betty Ford Clinic, The Caron Foundation and Delamo Hospital in Torrance, California. I have also been featured on television networks which include MSNBC News, ABC, CBS, Fox, A & E, CN8, as well as many newspaper and talk shows.
